A non traditional Christmas card- No red and No green...teal?

The new challenge over at the STAMPOTIQUE challenge blog is to make a non-traditional Christmas card.  Well....I sometimes struggle with these types of challenges... THO I LOVE ALL  of these non-trad cards , I also have a very strong Catholic faith.  Therefore, I feel pretty "traditional " when it comes to Christmas cards.
But!.. I do have ALOT  of people that I have to send cards to during the holiday season for various reasons so I went that route with my thoughts on this card . :)  I believe this card below would echo the sentiments of many people this time of year! lol....................
 The challenge is to use any colors but No red or green...truth is this looks green here but it is more teal... :)
I colored "Brrr" #6139 with copics right on the dp after stamping her with memento ink.  The sentiment is computer generated and I did a little sewing.  Snow courtesy of my white sharpie poster paint pen.  Pick up your STAMPOTIQUE stamps (only) for this challenge and put together a non- trad card for a chance to inherit a $30.00 gift to the Stampotique store.  TFL!

Just love your stitching ending with the pearls and the colour scheme Jane, I couldn't think of anything at all for this challenge, my brain is not in my cranium I think it is out to lunch possibly with Santa, which is perhaps why they are both a no show for this challenge :-)
